Dear diary: Almost 54 days without restarting my Macbook Pro.

Skype’s chat UI changes when I unplug the power; Chrome has begun aribtrarily turning webpages to flat white. There are equally bizarre workarounds for each, but I am finally giving in and restarting.

Goodnight, sweet prince. You’ve had a good run.

Randomized Garfield comics

Someone “noticed that Garfield comics make just as much sense if you throw random panels together, and sometimes are actually pretty funny. He got a cease and desist letter. So he made the code available for people who wanted to try it for themselves.”

This is one of the mirrors:

I don’t think they make “just as much” sense randomized, but since the ones that DO make sense weren’t all that much funnier, it works surprisingly well. Clever enough that it’s worth sharing (and viewing source if you’re a coder).

I suspect it’s possible to do with Cathy comics too… maybe I’ll try that this weekend 🙂
